We asked who you needed to buy for and there was an overwhelming request for what to buy for a boy beyond trucks and building toys.
Here's our recommendations to make your shopping easier this holiday season:
For boys over 8
Banangrams and Alphabet Dice are two of the hottest games this year. Each is a different spin on the traditional Scrabble where game play is faster and letter combinations change quickly to help you spell your way to victory.
The card game Loot is a unique strategy game that's also easy to transport. And if you're looking for a fun party game in card format, try Cranium Cards.
The new Disgusting Science range is proving popular with boys and girls alike where kids learn about everything from the science behind special effects - fake blood anyone? - to your favourite gags and pranks.

For 5-7 year old boys
Seedling craft and exploration kits are a great choice, check out the Create Your Own Sock Toy or Great Adventure Kit.
One of our favourite games for this age group is Rush Hour - choose from original, deluxe or our favourite, Safari Rush Hour. There are 60 different setups of varying difficulty making it entertaining for hours.
We also recommend games like award winning Rory's Story Cubes and Story Cubes Actions where you roll the dice and make up your own story with different scoring rules to increase the complexity.
And for boys like my son who still likes a soft toy to play with and cuddle, check out our Smoodoos like Sporty, Boxx, Bigg and iRat.

For 3-4 year old boys
Pretend play is big in this group and we love the idea of magnetic creative sets. Reusable and easy to pack away, yet hours of imaginative fun. Check out Melissa & Doug's Joey or our Mudpuppy kits of Robots, Construction and Outer Space.
Get creative with stamps featuring everything from dinosaurs to vehicles and more unusual Potato Heads and Knights.
Feed the Woozle is a wonderful award winning game for this age group. Kids work together as a team to select food and carry it to the mouth of the Woozle. Great for motor skills and early counting as well as a little laughter.
This is a great age to start out on Jigsaw puzzles with some fun images for boys like Construction Crowd or In the Galaxy, or the two-sided Very Hungry Caterpillar Puzzle.

For boys under 3 years old
Little ones will love some of the fantastic retro styled tin toys on offer. Choose from the traditional Jack in the Box or Spinning Humming Top (we love the foot to help it stand up). For something unique try the ABC Radio or Chime Ball.
Our range of Brainy Kids Games like Bright Buttons are designed for toddlers to enjoy game play. Simple rules and actions introduce board games while developing motor skills and social skills.
Introduce beautiful wooden puzzles to develop motor skills and matching. Choose from peg puzzles or chunky pieces depending on their age and development.
We also love the Eric Carle range of games. Introduce colours with Animals Animals Colour Bingo. The travel versions of the Very Hungry Caterpillar Game and ABC Game are compact yet offer the full game in a handy pack away tin box.
